partly cloudy by the afternoon, trivalley near 80. san francisco in the heart of that brisk wind. you're only at an average of 63 tomorrow. north bay coming in at 78. a huge warmup on the way for the north bay as we head into tomorrow's forecast. we have high pressure sitting off shore. that's the main reason our afternoon temperatures will continue to warm over the next three-day period. we'll see this warm weather through thursday's forecast. numbers begin to go back down right near average. friday, saturday and sunday 70s start to return. san francisco even with warmer weather, don't expect any heat this week. keep the jagged handy. in about 25 minutes, we're talking about the next chance of

one thing. on the surface, it looks like a comfortable lead for clinton. the super delegates can vote for whoever they want. >> that's an important point. >> clinton was here for the weekend. sanders is in sacramento tonight. now it's more than just about delegates, it's more about the delegates than the fund-raising, right? >>. >> about 1,000 left. more than half will be determined on june 7th, when 476 will be elected to join with 70 delegates. >> is it possible california will be a tipping poib the in
the democratic nomination rather than the republican? >> yes, clinton needs to finally nail down the nomination once and for all. sanders needs a venue to catch up and go ahead of clinton. here it is. this isn't the race we expected, i'm telling you, then again, this whole year has been a series of unexpected events, and we just added another. >> certainly not the way we had planned it. >> did your home health nurse come out to see you? i said, no, there is no home health nurse. >> in the hospital, kids get the care they need. sometimes when they go home, everything changes. i'm liz wagner. coming up next, the reason parents and a local lawmaker say california is breaking a promise to some of the sickest kids in the state? an east bay police department is under fire tonight accused of misreporting crimes to make the city of pittsburgh seem safer. i'm jodi hernandez, i'll have a

obtained by nbc bay area spells it out. instructing officers to label a case as suspicious circumstances when the facts are obscured. >> pittsburgh would say, we don't want this on our books, can we get away with calling it a suspicious circumstance. >> pittsburgh's former mayor and a lifelong resident believe the waterfront city is safer than it was a decade ago. but says the police department needs to be up front about the real crime numbers. >> the department needs to get out front in explaining that to the community. >> the police department released this statement. we are aware of the allegations and dispute them in their entirety. these are allegations of an employee that is retired and suing our city for $100 million. our chief has asked the district attorney to independently review reports in an effort to show transparency. the d.a. is not commenting. in pittsburgh, i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news.

when she arrived 8 weeks early. finn is still surrounded by machines and medicine. but now hugs from mom happen in her own bed. >> we really wanted her home. would that have been a possibility if we stayed in the bay area? we would not have been able to bring her home in the bay area. >> they knew her daughter needed 24/7 care. >> threw go. you ready? >> to give her life sustaining treatment. >> we check her gas trip tube. >> in napa, their search for full time nursing support came up short. so they moved 500 miles south. >> you had to uproot your family from the bay area and move down to san diego to find nursing services? >> yes. >> should it be that way? >> no. >> finn's long journey home highlights what many call a lack of vital home care for really
sick kids. the investigative unit contacted the children's services department in all nine bay area counties. six report concerns or problems. clients are on waiting lists for months. or napa where none of the agencies could provide home health for kids. >> it's very difficult. >> chris frank works for maxim. >> he says it's a constant challenge to feel shifts for patients like fin whose fragile medical conditions entitle them to medical. >> are there times when your agency can't provide services to people in need? >> yeah, every week. >> maxim funded this 2015 study which found access to home care is decreasing for medihelp patients. >> agencies are not taking these kids like they used to. >> 144 agencies in the bay area
accept medical. 34% of them report they provided care for children. >> for breaking a promise to some of the sickest ks in california it's unacceptable. north bay senator says increasing pay could increase access. >> has this reached crisis level? >> absolutely. bureaucrats in sacramento are turning their heads. as long as they don't change the numbers -- >> we have an issue with home health aids in the state. >> the department responsible for helping low income and disabled californians. she says the state doesn't track when agencies turn down patients. beyond a few anecdotes, the department hasn't received consistent complaints. >> are you asking for that
information to help get a better picture of what's going on? >> if we were worried about it, or thought there was a systemic or even a geographical problem. we could do that. >> the state overseas the number of home care hours authorized but doesn't track the hours agencies can't fill. >> wouldn't it be worth looking into that information? >> yeah, i'm happy to look into it. >> can you commit to see if there is an access problem? >> yeah, we can do that. >> obstacles aren't limited to medical patients. >> after 40 days in the hospital following two throat surgeries, james returned to his santa rosa home. >> it's really scary, the first few days of coming home. >> james eats through a feeding tube, when o'leary found blood in his stomach fluid she called kaiser. they said, did your home health nurse come out to see you?
i said, no, there is no home health nurse. there is no pediatric home health available in the area. a nurse finally visited 10 days after james came home. kaiser told us they can't discuss the case. but said the shortage of home health nurses is affecting the entire community. >> we do this -- >> with the right resources and committed care gavers, they believe kids like their daughter can this riv. finn is it a success story. they say it's all because of opportunity. >> and she's getting more and more opportunities every day. >> now, we're also hearing from doctors and icu nurses, they say kids have to stay in the hospital months longer than necessary in some cases because they can't find available in home nurses. they warn that it's an expensive problem for the state.

faster and more reliably. >> inside silicon valley start-up zipline designs the drones. outside, they test them. having just signed a deal with ups to deliver life saving supplies through airdrops like this one to hospitals in rwanda. >> over the last few months we've been working directly with the government of rwanda to use zip lines to make deliveries of blood to about half of the trans fusing facilities in the country. >> with the goal of expanding air delivery. >> we have those challenges even here in the u.s. and a lot of first world countries. certainly a lot of other parts of the world whether it's conflict or poor infrastructure or washout roads. >> one flight and one payload. >> this is a standard unit of blood. >> at a time. >> as for a future of commercial

coastline, the thickest for tomorrow morning. a little bit of green showing up, computer models are indicating the possibility of drizzle. low clouds, and that continues right into the north bay. i think we cannot rule out low clouds to start for the morning hours. there's your sunshine for the interior valleys. half moon bay, you'll get that typical fog that begins to build in this time of year. if you're here visiting, looks like you should be able to get a snapshot of that sometime in the late morning hours. by the afternoon, temperatures warm up, san jose expecting 78 degrees. couper teenie a degree warmer. keeping your numbers down. the wind won't be strong enough to keep the temperatures down. a cooler 63 for the marina.
